10 Baltimore Rappers That You Need to Know
DBoi Da Dome
DBoi Da Dome grew up near Pennsylvania Avenue in an area of West Baltimore known as “The Dome” hence his name. He quickly put aside his turbulent past of the street life behind to focus more on expanding his brand as a hip-hop Artist. His first street album A Dope Boi’s Dream raised quite a response not only for the lyrics, but a photoshoped image of a then rumored “dope boy” DBoi posing next to Martin Luther King, which the rapper refuted stating, “People think just because you come from the bottom that you can’t have a dream too. I’ve been through so much, but I believe in my dream just as strongly as he believed in his and that’s why I stood next to the King.” 2012 proved to be a year of more success gaining DBoi attention from label execs as well as the opportunity to open up for Bad Boy Recordings artist King Los. He also closed out the year dropping another project The Response, with the popular single “Taking Shots,” it’s evident DBoi has evolved as an artist.
